I got started a long time ago... I was just turning 15 yrs old and was trying out for the football team. At the end of my tryouts I was told by the coach that I needed to add size to possibly have a chance at making it on the team. I found this local gym called Elmo's Gym, I walked inside to take a look and was greeted a man older but still in phenomenal shape. I asked if I could look around and he agreed to let me look around. Afterwards he asked what exactly I was looking for I told him I wanted to get into bodybuilding and have that Arnold Schwarzenegger muscles. He then asked if I was 18 and I was of course not he gives me a application tells me to have my parents sign and come back next day. He introduced himself as Elmo Santiago Mr. Universe 1965. I came back the next day and he help me in turn I help clean up when he closed the gym down. Long story short I made the team and was hooked with bodybuilding ever since. How cool was that learning from a pro and a great mentor.
